Select Publix Super Markets will be offering flu season immunizations utilizing the Bioject® ZetaJetTM needle-free injection system. Publix will be conducting evaluations in 52 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.
“We are pleased that Publix has chosen to offer the Bioject ZetaJet spring-powered device, Bioject’s latest advance in needle-free delivery, for this year’s flu immunizations,” said Dr. Richard Stout, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Bioject. “The ergonomically-designed Bioject ZetaJet provides patients a convenient alternative to the needle and syringe for the administration of the flu vaccine,” added Dr. Stout.
The Bioject ZetaJet, Bioject’s latest advance in needle-free delivery systems, consists of two components, the portable injector and an auto-disabling disposable syringe. It is intended to deliver vaccines and injectable medications up to 0.5 mL either subcutaneously or intramuscularly. The syringe assembly has a unique “auto-disable” feature that prevents its re-use.
